UNESCO New Delhi, acting as a catalyst, initiated the Parzor Project for the Preservation and Promotion of Parsi Zoroastrian Culture and Heritage in 1999. Parzor has been working for 15 years to create awareness of a Bronze Age community which still survives. It is also spreading knowledge both about India’s multicultural diversity and the Zoroastrian community’s contribution to world history, thought, craft and ecology.
This Navroz, a year-and-a-half later, the Jiyo Parsi scheme has good news to report. While 30 babies have been born since the scheme began, another 11 are expected. As many as 50 couples are undergoing medical treatment under the scheme.
